PADS - CUE LOOP


Hold SHIFT and then press the HOTCUE mode button to set the PADs to Cue Loop mode (Led will be lit in green)

In this mode each one of the 8 pads assigns a Hot Cue Point or jumps the track to that Hot Cue Point, but in both cases, it also triggers a Loop at that point (momentary or toggle depending on the selected mode from the Page menu).
